SUNDAY SCHOOL

JR CHURCH

   WE ALREADY HAVE AN AWESOME S.S. PROGRAM, HOWEVER IT IS GOING TO GET A MAJOR OVERHAUL!!! WE WANT TO DO OUR BEST FOR GOD, IN ALL THAT WE DO. WE HAVE SOME TRULY BLESSED TEACHERS. I BELIEVE GOD HAS PUT US TOGETHER FOR A REASON AND WE WANT TO BE AN HONORABLE VESSEL FOR HIM. PRAY FOR US AS I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:14

  JUST A WORD ON JR CHURCH. WE ARE TRULY BLESSED, TO HAVE BROTHER BOBBY, SISTER APRIL, AND THEIR CHILDREN, CONNOR AND RACHEL. THEY ARE ANOINTED OF GOD, TO DO THIS MINISTRY. WE RECENTLY HAD THE HONOR OF FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE IN JR CHURCH. THEY CAME OVER (TO THE BIG CHURCH) AND WE ALLOWED THEM TO TAKE CHARGE OF THE SERVICE. WE WERE FORCED TO TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITIES. EVERYONE KNOWS WE WOULDN'T ACT LIKE THAT ON OUR OWN, AT LEAST, AS FAR AS YOU KNOW. WE HAD A BLAST!!! AND LEARNED A GREAT LESSON. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO.

REVIVAL
July 14th, 2005 2:24 AM

     IN THE LAST SEVEN WEEKS I HAVE BURIED BOTH OF MY GRANDMOTHERS. TWO LADIES, THAT WERE WONDERFUL PEOPLE. I, MUCH LIKE OTHERS, AM SELFISH. I MISS THEM, BUT I KNOW THEY ARE IN GOOD HANDS. I AM REMINDED OF THEIR HAPPINESS. I GUESS IT'S BECAUSE OF THE LOVE I FELT EACH TIME I STEPPED IN THEIR PRESENCE. MANY MEMORIES, I HAVE TO LOOK BACK ON, BUT IT'S THE FUTURE I HAVE THAT KEEPS ME GOING. ETERNITY WITH GOD, IS MY DESTINATION. AS WELL AS THAT OF MY MAMAWS.

      REVIVAL, IS THE SUBJECT WE NEED TO LOOK AT. WHAT IS REVIVAL? IS IT FOR THE LOST? NO. CAN THE LOST BE SAVED AT REVIVAL? YES. WELL WHO IS IT FOR? REVIVAL IS FOR THE FOLKS THAT HAVE BEEN SAVED, BUT SOME HOW HAVE FALLEN AWAY FROM GOD. THEY MAY HAVE LAID DOWN THEIR CROSS OR SIMPLY JUST DRIFTED AWAY. IT'S FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST THE JOY OF GOD'S SALVATION. IT'S FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO DRAW A LITTLE CLOSER TO JESUS. WE ALL NEED REVIVAL. REVIVAL STIRS THE HEART, IT SHOWS US AREAS WE NEED TO WORK ON. IT HELPS US TO DRAW CLOSER TO GOD. PRAY FOR REVIVAL, NOT ONLY FOR YOURSELF BUT FOR OUR NATION.

SOLDIERS

I WANT TO ASK A SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST FOR ALL OUR PEOPLE IN THE ARMED FORCES. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT BRANCH THEY SERVE IN OR IF THEY SERVED LONG AGO OR ARE CURRENTLY SERVING. THESE PEOPLE ARE PUTTING THEIR LIFE ON THE LINE FOR YOU AND I THAT WE CAN HAVE FREEDOM. MANY HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES AND MANY HAVE NO LIFE. WAR IS NOT EASY ON ANYONE. A SOLDIER MAY COME BACK HEALTHY AND IN LOOKING GOOD, BUT THAT PERSON HAS FACED THINGS THEY WILL NEVER FORGET, THINGS I'M SURE THEY WOULD LOVE TO PUT BEHIND THEM, BUT WILL REMAIN IN THE BACK OF THEIR MIND UNTIL DEATH. THERE ARE SOME SOLDIERS THAT GET OVER LOOKED ALOT. IT'S THE SPOUSES. THE ONES THAT STILL HAVE TO MAINTAIN THE HOME FRONT. RAISE THE CHILDREN, WORK THE JOB, KEEP UP THE HOME, PAY THE BILLS AND ALL THE OTHER THINGS NOBODY REALIZES. THESE PEOPLE WERE DOING THIS WITH HELP AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY HAVE TO DO IT ALL ALONE. CHRISTIANS IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE LIKE THIS GIVE A HELPING HAND. CAN YOU IMAGINE WAKING UP TOMORROW WITHOUT OUR HUSBAND OR WIFE. GOD HAS BLESSED US. BE THE ONE, OUT OF THE TEN THAT RETURNS TO THANK HIM. THANK HIM BY LENDING A HAND. MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!

IN CHRIST,
PASTOR TONY

Friday - April 1st, 2005

     WE HAD OUR FIRST  PRAYER BREAKFAST. IT WAS MADE UP OF OFFICERS AT NEW CENTER. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. WE ADDRESSED SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES. PLEASE PRAY FOR US AS WE SEEK TO BE LED BY GOD. THERE ARE A LOT OF PROGRAMS AND THINGS WE COULD TRY, HOWEVER IF WE WILL JUST ALLOW GOD TO USE US, TO DIRECT US, AND HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL, THEN WE WILL, IN NO DOUBT, DO THE RIGHT THING. SHOULD YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY, TO VISIT NEW CENTER, WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO WELCOME YOU. MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!
 

SPRING IS UPON US, A TIME OF NEW LIFE. I SUPPOSE YOU COULD SAY THE SAME THING IN A SPIRITUAL SENSE. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT IN A PHYSICAL SENSE, SPRING IS A SEASON THAT COMES ONLY ONCE A YEAR. A SEASON IN WHICH IT'S TIME TO SOW. IN A SPIRITUAL ASPECT SPRING IS ALL YEAR AROUND. SOWING SHOULD NEVER CEASE. NEW LIFE SHOULD ALWAYS BE. GOD'S WORD SAYS "....BEHOLD, NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION" 2COR. 6:2

 
Psalms 134:2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.
